ICAMEK recommends that parties include the following Arbitration Clause when drawing their contracts/agreements.
The ICAMEK Arbitration Model Clause
Any dispute arising out of or in connection with this contract, including any question regarding its validity existence or termination shall be referred to or resolved by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Arbitration & Mediation in Kampala in accordance with the ICAMEK Rules for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this clause.
Note — Parties should consider adding:
- The number of arbitrators shall be… (one or three);
- The seat or legal place of arbitration shall be… (town and country);
- The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be…
The ICAMEK Model Clause is not intended to fit all dispute situations nor does it necessarily cover the particular circumstances of your agreement or dispute. You and your legal advisers must carefully consider how appropriate the sample wordings are for your agreement and the kinds of dispute they may need to cover and if necessary, amend the sample wordings to suit your particular circumstances. You agree to rely on your own professional advice and to accept responsibility for the use of any of the wordings.
